The Department of Transportation has announced nearly 100 groups will participate in its sixth annual  “Imagine A Litter Free Delaware” Clean Up Day set for Saturday, Oct. 2.

Many of those registered are current Adopt-A-Highway volunteers who will be cleaning Delaware roadsides, yet several individuals and friends and family members have also made the commitment to clean neighborhoods and communities throughout the state.  Registration for the event will continue until Friday, Oct. 1.

Motorists should stay alert between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Oct. 2 for groups of people removing litter from roadsides. All participants should be wearing brightly colored safety vests, but motorists should still proceed with caution. Participants will be on both main roads and rural roads, as well as in local neighborhoods and communities.

Should inclement weather occur, participants will be out Sunday, Oct. 2, the designated rain date.
